3.1. Basics of mojeID

MojeID is a service that allows its users to create and centrally manage their internet identity (a set of personal data, e.g. first name, surname, e-mail address, phone number, etc. together with login methods). Users can then use this identity to log into various external web applications (applications of different service providers than the identity provider) and they do not have to create individual accounts and repeatedly fill in their basic information and use different usernames and passwords.

The mojeiD service is a specific implementation of the OpenID 2.0 and OpenID Connect 1.0 standard for decentralized management of internet identities which define the ways to verify these centrally managed identities and the forms of their identifiers.

MojeID is specific for the Czech internet environment and offers the service providers additional advantages over the standard OpenID, e.g. extended set of personal data in the identities and their transfering, or more login methods with the possibility to require certain level of authentication.
